. with the budget sequester that would tut a trillion dollars from the budget, speaker of the house john boehner warned of dire consequences if it's allowing to through. a wall street journal opinion piece, you'll be shocked to hear blamed the entire mess on president obama. boehner named just a couple of things that he pushed through the house must be avoided. it threatens u.s. national security, thousands of jobs and more. america's military budget would be slashed, border security, law enforcement, aviation safety and many other programs would all have diminished resources. now a they have to do is gray to cut a matching trillion dollars plus out of programs like social security which voters overwhelmingly want untouched and boehner and the republicans will make the sequester go away. well, that's not going to happen. shouldn't the speaker be willing to compromise and take it off the table even if that meant to graying to revenue hikes tax increases for those who can easily afford tax increases? apparently that's not going to happen either. meanwhile, in action is having its consequences. the
, february 25th. so which is it, speaker boehner, political compromise, or economic catastrophe? the choice is yours. ♪ >> in just four days congress is poised to allow a series of arbitrary automatic budget cuts to kick in. thousands of teachers and educators will be laid off. >> is the president exaggerating the impact of these cuts? >> absolutely. >> these guys are going to shed crocodile tears. >> these cuts do not have to happen. congress can turn them off anytime. >> uncertainty of sequestration is really harming our state. >> we also need republicans to adopt the same approach to tax reform that speaker boehner championed just two months ago. >> the crisis is made up. it's been created. >> compromise is essential to getting things done. >> and the oscar goes to -- >> woodward said it was president obama. >> bob woodward. >> at some point we have to do some governing. ♪ >> this is the final countdown. we are just four days from the sequester deadline. after a week's recess, congress chose a 2:00 p.m. start this afternoon and now speaker john boehner is moments away from a capitol
" is following what appears to be another public split between john boehner and eric kantor over immigration reform at this time. in his weekly conference, house speaker boehner refused to endorse the receipt support of giving immigrant children a pathway to citizenship. >> i top the do everything i can to foster this continuing conversation in a bipartisan fashion to deal with what is say very difficult issue in our country. it is worthy of consideration. >> in a speech yesterday, kantor endorsed the dream act that he voted against in 2010. >> one of the great founding principals of our country was that children would not be punished for the mistakes of their parents. it is time to provide an opportunity for legal residents and citizenship for those who are brought to this country as children and know no other home. >> the last time the pair split over the fiscal cliff deal, kantor voted against it and even more significant because it involves outreach for a key voting brought. we know the republicans want to bring into the foelld. kelly, it is fair to say speaker boehner praised eric kanto
chose a 2:00 p.m. start this afternoon and now speaker john boehner is moments away from a capitol hill press conference. we fully expect him to plame the president for the looming cuts that will affect everything from flights to food inspection. meanwhile, the administration is applying the pressure releasing state by state figures of what the automatic budget cuts will mean in practice, including 52,000 military workers furloughed in texas. 9,600 low income students losing their financial aid in california. and ohio teachers and schools losing $25 million in funding. one might imagine that state governors are none too happy about it and addressing the national governors association today, the president called out speaker boehner saying all it takes to avoid the ax is just a little compromise. >> i stand by those commitments to make the reforms for smart spending cuts. but we also need republicans to adopt the same approach to tax reform that speaker boehner championed just two months ago. >> so will speaker boehner agree to sensible balanced measures on the debt or will he dig in his
of congress and speaker boehner new there was no consensus. they put these cuts which nobody liked in to the law. if we so far that has not worked. things are worse the the threat of sequestration. guest: senators and representatives tried to come to an agreement. now it has been kicked down to hire leaders. host: so far, wall street has reacted to this. they think congress will figure out a way or the cuts will not be such a bad thing. george will says it is not the most intelligent way to prune government. such critics are utopians if they are waiting for the arrival of intelligent government. guest: you mentioned wall street has not reacted negatively. that is true. one important point about the economy we have to raise. go outside of wall street. the cbo has made clear that if the sequestered stays in effect, the impact is not small. the cbo is talking about 750,000 jobs lost. heat in mind that there are civilian employees of the pentagon, air traffic -- keep in mind that there are civilian employees of the pentagon. those are private sector jobs. 750,000 jobs and a 0.6% drag o
the republicans pony up enhancing tax reform. speaker boehner says no tax reform until there's entitlement reform. both sides know their bases. they know they can go on with the decisions as long as their political bases support them. this could be a long time. boehner's biggest worry isn't the president. it's the tea party members of his own caucus that might bring him down. the president's biggest worry is that boehner alone it's the democrats who will resolve him. the only question to which i do not know the answer is how in the world can boehner and the president cut a deal when they're so restricted as to what they can accept? and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "politicsnation" with al sharpton starts right now. >>> thanks, chris. and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, the gop losing it. we're just three days away from massive budget cuts designed to be so brutal that even far-right republicans would see the light in compromise. instead, it looks like the pressure is getting to speaker boehner. >> we have moved a bill in the house twice. we should not have to
boehner reached back in 2011. the think i was that democrats won't cut social programs and republicans won't cut millation spending but they'll have to save face politically. today for their annual meeting president obama enlisted the governor's help. >> obama: while you are in town i hope you speak with your congressional delegation and remind them exactly what is at steak, and who is at risk. these cuts do not have to happen. congress can turn them off any time with just a little bit of compromise. >> michael: so some governors heeded that call but louisiana's respect governor is not one of them. outside of the white house jindal called for president obama to show leadership. >> i think it's time to [ inaudible ] prioritized list of reductions that preserves political services every governor here has had to balance their budget every family has had to balance their budget the reality is it can be done. >> michael: so jengdel blames the president standing right in his front yard. >> it's time to cut tending here in washington, instead of using our military men a
it? a funny thing happened. the truth popped out. john boehner threatens the cuts to the u.s. national security, thousands of jobs and more. boehner is right. these cuts were design today be so brutal, so awful that even extremist republicans would want to avoid them. and, yet, the hill reports today that republicans have decided o the requester is where they'll make their stand on spending cuts. it's downright crazy. republicans admit the cuts will threaten national security and kill jobs. but they refuse to stop them? it makes zero sense. >>> a new economic report warns these cuts could cause 700,000 workers to lose their jobs this year alone. >>> the pentagon today passed a plan to furlough 8,000 workers if the cuts take effect. it's shameful. and the president is fighting that. today, he gave interviews to 8 different tv shows around the country, demand gd the gop stop these spending cuts, and, instead, close loopholes for the rich. >> instead of us cutting education, mental health programs and a whole range of other things that are really important, we should be focus
people. >> let's go ahead and play john boehner. john boehner was just speaking a moment ago, i want to play it for everybody. go ahead and listen. >> -- if he's serious about enacting his agenda, i think it must start with the part of this congress that his party controls the united states senate. you know, what can he get passed in the united states senate. the president wants to impose a national cap and trade energy tax. i would hope that senate democrats would take it up. if the president wants more stimulus spending, i would expect the united states senate to go ahead and take it up. if the president wants more tax hikes that destroy jobs, then his democrat allies in the senate ought to take it up. this isn't the agenda that many americans are looking for. and i think many in the president's own party won't support those ideas. in the house, we're going to continue to focus on what the american people's top priorities are, creating jobs and cutting spending. now, for the last two years, the house has done its work, we've passed legislation to tackle the tough challenges that am
of the house, john boehner said he is willing to do just a few months ago. he said there were loopholes and deductions you could close. said you could raise $800 billion or trillion by closing loopholes, i don't think that is too much to ask. i don't think that is partisan, the majority of american people agree with me. the majority of new port news agrees with me. we need to get this done. >> speaker boehner, your turn. >> to be clear, no revenue increases. we're not -- the president got his tax hikes in january. federal government will have more revenue this year than any year in our history. it is time to tackle spending. period. >> okay, we need to stop here for a minute. speaker boehner is playing real loose with those numbers. what he said, if you listen, what he said is narrowly true. because we have inflation in this country, most countries and economic growth. and that means any revenue number today will be bigger than any other revenue number a decade ago or two decades ago, even if taxes were much higher. so we don't usually measure taxes like that because it doesn't tell us
second term? >> well, the first go around back in the summer of 2011 he and john boehner went behind closed doors met in secret, cooked up what became known as the grand bargain. he had given entitlement cuts, boehner would find $800 million in revenue and that worked well until joe biden maybe accidentlily told eric cantor the number two republican and the bile rival with boehner that they were holding negotiations, and he didn't like that. they pushed everything down at the election creating at the time the fiscal cliff which was as one person in our film called a suicide event strapped on to the economy and waiting to be detonated. after the election obama sits down with boehner. they wait until the middle of december because obama has been slow walking boehner's proposal were right after the election. and the president is pretty tough. he doesn't want to give anything that he was giving away back in the grand bargain talk. and he doesn't think boehner at $800 billion is giving him enough. that's a signal right there that things are not going to go well back in december, and we kn
speaker boehner and senate leader mitch mcconnell call the president's speech a missed opportunity. >> an opportunity to bring together the country and instead became a retread of lip service and liberalism. for democratic president entering his second term, it was simply unequal to the moment. following four years of this president's unwillingness to challenge liberal dogma. we got more of the same. >> i have been dealing with a minimum wage issue for the last 28 years that i have been elected office. when you raise the price of employment, guess what happens. you get less of it. in a time when the american people are asking where are the jobs, why would we want to make it harder for small employers to hire people. >> let's bring in the "news nation" panel and syndicated talk show host and contributor michael smerconish, cnbc contributor and columnist for reuters and the atlantic. lots of jobs for you. let me start off with you. you have a president talking about raising the minimum wage and the follow-up from republicans today is that that would hurt the jobs creators. an argumen
's unwillingness to challenge liberal dogma, we got more of the same. >> well, speaker john boehner dismissed the president's proposal to raise the minimum wage to $9 on hour. let's listen to the speaker. >> listen. i've been dealing with the minimum wage issue for the last 28 years that i've been in elective office. and when you raise the price of employment, guess what happens. you get less of it. at a time when the american people are still asking the question where are the jobs, why would we want to make it harder for small employers to hire people? >> you know, chuck, last night reminded me of high school debating. it was the same old arguments. i mean, i'm not putting him down necessarily. but what we heard from senator rubio and boehner. let's fight over minimum wage. the evils of minimum wage. >> this is where you look at this -- and i look at this speech as a political document. you look at the minimum wage is a 65% approved item. when you look at universal pre-k. that's a 65% approval. when you look at the idea of having high schools get more skill -- teach more actic skills, this i
boehner responded president obama is ultimately responsible for the military readiness and it's fair to ask, what is he doing to stop his sequester that would hollow out our armed forces. joining me now is kelly o'donnell. the president will kipitch this program that includes $50 billion for transportation infrastructure and a public-private partnership to attract financing that they have as a partnership to rebuild america and cutting red tape to get permits. sounds like a decent start. >> those are well-tested ideas. they like to see government deal with red tape and infrastructure is popular. those are solid ideas that the president can try to campaign on, if you will. he has the power of the office and the reach of the office that gives him a real advantage in this debate over the sequester cuts. being able to do those interviews across the country in key markets where there will likely be a profound impact and do an effect where he has himself surrounded by 50 responders. those are powerful queues to the public. the president is playing the game of going around congress and conn
that disproportionately benefit very wealthy people. speaker john boehner said he could come up with $800 billion through a tax reform plan. we're simply saying to the house republicans that we want to do with speaker john boehner said he could do. use some of their revenue from closing loopholes to close the deposit. you are right. republicans so far have said they're not willing to close one tax loophole, not for a corporate jet for big tax -- big oil companies for the purpose of reducing the deficit. when it is that trade-off, are they more interested in protecting the economy and defense spending? then i think he will begin to see a little bit of a change in attitude. >> what is there is not a change in attitude and calculations? this deadline is different than previous ones. we were facing the prospect of a default. it was a stone wall. we could not afford to hit it. where were facing taxes immediately going up. it was a pretty hard stonewall we could not afford to hit. this time, they're saying we really do not want this to happen, but if it does it is the other guy's fault. is that kind of what we
gotten a picture, you'll remember, when president obama played with house speaker john boehner. we it get a picture. in this instance, i think that there was a lot of interest in having a picture because, of course, it was an historic moment. this was the first time that the president played with tiger woods, and we are told, again, according to a golf reporter, that the president said to tiger that he was glad that he was playing better, so there was a lot of interest in what was happening and, of course, of seeing visual representation and at this point having gotten that. andrea. >> of course. questions occur. did they not permit a picture because it's tiger woods and because some people might object to tiger woods and the controversy of the past? is it because they didn't want to see the president -- show the president vacationing and he is intigs entitled to a vacation on a weekend we're facing the sequester and the congress is also vacationing? is it because it's his second term, and he is feeling more relaxed about doing things that he really always wanted to do? it's just raising
